Now comes one of my favorite masks from New Zealand. This is called Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask. Can I just say that it works wonders on my skin?!!! GLOW GLOW GLOW !!! That is all I see after using this baby!!! I don’t only love consuming manuka honey but I happen to love using it on my face! Seriously!!!! My skin is more combination/dry with occasional blemishes and this mask helps to address all of the issues.
What It Does : This mask is known to cleanse and intensely hydrate the skin. It works more like an antioxidant and moisturizing treatment for my face. I love the way my skin feels after — radiant and ready for a face cream to be put on!! It is great for spots and blemishes. Also recommended for all skin conditions, especially blemish prone.

If you want an eye balm that you can carry with, sleep with, play with then this one is for you!!! Well, that is kind of what I do…haha!! This eye balm by Evan Healy is so nourishing that will hug my ender eyes’ skin ALL day long especially in the winter months. My under eye skin gets really dry if I don’t use a balm or a heavy cream. And it doesn’t matter what the season is. Its always dry!!! I use under my eye makeup and on my chapped lips, cracked skin, or on the back of my hands to keep my skin well hydrated. It is truly multifunctional.
What it does : Cold pressed wild carrot seed oil and handmade whipped shea butter keep my nourished all day. Can be applied under eye makeup but be sure to allow this balm to absorb well into the skin first. It also brightens, tones and protects my skin with certified organic sunflower, avocado, cocoa butter and rosehip oils.
Quick Tip : If you are taking a photo of your hands then be sure to try out this balm all over on the back of your hands as well as the outer skin of your fingers to make your hands look more nourished and glowing. And you will not have to worry about the greasy ness because of the applicator. Yay!!
